This is another relatively easy stitch with instructions that looks more intimidating than it actually is. The main thing to remember which wrap is the first and which is the second, but they do appear different when you look at them.

The stitch is fully reversible in one color. Adding color or stripes affects the reversibility dramatically. (See stripes below.)
